CALL FROM SAMULAS: MAKE A STRATEGIC PRODUCT
In the conference, which was attended by representatives from Aselsan and TÜBİTAK, as well as rail system operators such as Istanbul Transportation, Metro Izmir, SAMULAŞ Deputy General Manager Ziya Kalafat said, “The supply of consumables, which are the most important expenses of our businesses, from domestic production rather than import, will decrease the costs. The most important step in this direction will be to include such materials in the 'Strategic Product'. We believe that our state should focus on this issue, especially through KOSGEB. ”
DOMESTIC PRODUCTION IN WHEEL BANDAGE
Ziya Kalafat explains the works about 'Wheel Bandage', which constitutes one of the most important cost items of SAMULAŞ and the point reached, to all the guests attending the conference, “After the project we have realized by realizing 'reverse engineering' by collaborating with our city university, we provide. For this, we have created an important added value as SAMULAŞ thanks to the wheel bandages produced by the firm we have agreed in Ankara. ”
MILLIONS OF LIRA STAY IN COUNTRIES
Reminding that they started to use local trams as well as Italian and Chinese productions in Samsun, Assistant General Manager Ziya Kalafat said, “As the rail system operators, the most costly consumable material is the wheel bandage. For this, we make about 20 million euro purchases abroad every year. For this reason, we need to start producing wheel bandages as soon as possible. We have to ensure that millions of lira remain in our country by producing domestic and national production of this material. As SAMULAŞ, we think that we set an important example in this direction. ”
